Pressure Point Technology

A promising treatment option for patients with lateral tendinosis

Unlike other “passive” therapies, BioBrace devices, such as our patented ForeArmed® elbow brace, use active pressure point therapy designed to rest over specific accupressure meridians and nerve and muscle pathways, stimulating neurohumoral release and helping to mediate discomfort relief. Pressure over this targeted area helps reduce strain on the inflammed nerve.

Passive belts and straps can only apply even, uniform pressure to the affected area, making them functionally ineffective. BioBrace products, with their patented dynamic “Pressure Point” elements apply targeted force to specific nerve and muscle pathways achieving the desired therapeutic result.

Lateral Tendinosis (Tennis Elbow)


image

Tennis elbow is caused by repeated contraction and twisting of the wrist muscles, causing tiny tears in the tendon, leading to inflammation.

Injury can occur from sports that involve twisting the hand or wrist such as tennis, bowling, skiing or golfing. People whose jobs require repeated or strenuous forearm activity, such as mechanics or woodworkers are also susceptable.

Persons with tennis elbow suffer from a recurring pain and tenderness on the outside of the upper forearm just below the elbow. Sometimes the pain radiates down the arm toward the wrist.

Lifting, bending or even picking up light objects with the affected arm can cause pain. If the condition is allowed to become chronic, grip strength can decrease.

Medial Epicondylitis

Similar to tennis elbow, medial epicondylitis occurs when the tendon attached to the flexor muscles of the forearm (used to bend the fingers and thumb) is injured where it attaches to the elbow and becomes inflammed.

This situation is often referred to as golfer's elbow, because this tendon is used in driving a ball on the golf course. However, epicondylitis frequently develops in people who have never golfed at all.

Persons with this condition experience pain and extreme tenderness on the middle part of the elbow joint. The pain becomes much worse when the flexor muscles are tightened, such as when clenching the fist or bending the fingers. Weakness in the flexor muscles can occur as a result.

Tendinitis

Repeated or sudden stretching of the tendons in the forearm can cause injury to their connection to the bone or muscle.

Tendinitis usually occurs in middle-aged or older persons since it is often the result of overuse for an extended period of time. Tendinitis also occurs in younger people as a result of acute overuse as well.

Persons with tendinitis can have swelling, tenderness and pain.

Clinical Study showed 88% of patients had improvements of their symptoms.
